Roam the ancient ruins to enlightenment. After centuries of conflict and decay, the Acropolis of Athens has been rigorously restored. With imported marble, and a little straightening out of those old Parthenon columns (restoration obviously was a bit more in-depth than this), the Acropolis is open for visitors. Take a tour of this ancient citadel absolutely jam-packed with history. You will turn to stone in wonder! Stay studious a while more—this was, after all, the mecca of philosophy, education, and even democracy—and check out The National Archeological Museum of Athens, the largest archeological museum in Greece with an unbelievable collection of Greek antiquities. Visit Ancient Agora and walk in the ponderous footsteps of Plato and Socrates through this historical downtown marketplace. Tie up those Greek sandals and clod your way over to the Psiri or Gazi districts for more of a modern day downtown experience, where you’ll find a plethora of street vendors and a bustling nightlife. Cafés and tavernas abound (be sure to get some fried feta at Strofi Taverna!) and raise the roof at one of the many rooftop bars like the Skylounge at Meliã or the GB Roof Garden, which offer amazing views of the Acropolis lit up at night. You can even catch an outdoor movie at Cine Thisio, also perfectly overlooking the illuminated Acropolis. Should the movie be boring, you’ll still have something quite epic to keep you entertained!
